The first swap was a great success, so I'm doing this again! :)


This is an easy one: you will have ONE partner and you will send your partner ONE postcard from/about your home state!

Simply grab a touristy postcard (from YOUR city or state) and on it, write about something your partner should do/visit if they were to visit your state. A cool museum? A famous restaurant? A state landmark? An infamous location? It can be your home city or any city you've been to in your state--it's up to you! Imagine your partner is visiting your state on your recommendation--there's something cool in every state, so let your partner know what it is!

My bucket list is to visit all 50 states, so I plan on doing multiples of this same swap so I can get postcards from all over and plan my future trips--your suggestion may be exactly what I do when I get to your state! :)

I know we're all busy people, so you'll have 2 weeks/14 days to get your postcard in the mail. I will angel if necessary, but hopefully everyone will be so excited to share cool stuff about their home, I won't need to! :D

Get to swappin'! <3

Please note this swap is for US people only. :)


Edit: Number three in the top swaps as of 10.01--woohoo! Thanks everyone for joining--I'll be doing a third one for sure in early November! :)


Edit: Number one swap on the site as of 10.04--wow! A huge thank you to everyone for joining in! Y'all rock!

Are we gonna send it naked or in an envelope? :)

I prefer mine in an envie as they can get torn/ bent in mail. Check profile of partner for their preference. Ultimately it would be sender choice, but if you want a heart look at profile-usual rule of thumb if not posted

may I join I just started and this sounds like a easy and fun swap for me

Ambelleina 10/ 7/2013 #

@NickyNightmare Up to you, but the requirement is simply to drop it in the mail. As @transplanted1 noted, you can check your partner's profile to see if they have a preference; I like mine naked because I want the postmark. :)

Ambelleina 10/ 7/2013 #

@Spencer853 Sure, but please fill out your profile! That is a pretty common requirement for newbies around here. Today is the last day to sign up so if you fill your profile out a bit (you can check out mine as an example) and sign up, you can play along. :)

I haven't sent anything for quite some time so I like that this only has one partner. :-)

fawnscrafts 10/ 7/2013 #

Can we send a card of the actual place we write a bout?

mamajoy 10/ 7/2013 #

Since you write on the card, I would think it would be sent naked, not in an envelope. Just saying...

amyswagner 10/ 8/2013 #

When are we going to be assigned partners? It's the 8th

Ambelleina 10/ 9/2013 #

Sorry guys, I had a LOT of people to go through to make sure everyone met the requirements. Happy swapping! <3

Ambelleina 10/ 9/2013 #

@fawnscrafts Please send a postcard. :)

Ambelleina 10/10/2013 #

Thanks @angelstar I prefer one partner swaps, too! I'll probably be doing 10 or so of these, always with just one partner, so be on the lookout for the next one! :)

I sent mine some days ago and now I received the one sent to me today! Yay! This is such a cool swap I will definitely join the next one! :-)
